Fantasy Baseball: Standard trade targets

Week two of fantasy baseball brings a multitude of trade offers annually. Are the trades lopsided or fair? I'm going to go through some players and give you fair trade equivalents at this current point in the season. Some of these are buy low targets, some are sell high targets. Just remember, it is tough to sell a hot start for an established player. Just because DJ LaMahieu has 16-hits already for the Rockies, it doesn't mean you can offer him up for Robinson Cano. The season is long, 30-at bats is nothing in a season full of 600 at bats. Don't panic, hold onto your studs for at least a month before you trade them for the flavor of the week.
